Festive fundraising raises over £3,500 for charity

16th January 2020


We would like to extend our gratitude to our customers and suppliers for helping us raise over £3,500 for Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland over the 2019 festive season.

Our annual Christmas shopping evenings, in Penrith and at Orton Grange, raised an amazing £3,102 from entry tickets, donation buckets and the grand raffle.

Additional donations came from sales of our Christmas puddings, where 50p for every one sold was donated, plus collection tins in the shops.

Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland means so much to us at Cranstons and we are always blown away by the support given when we fundraise for this wonderful charity.

We always like to participate in a big challenge every year, or two years, and 2019 saw a team from across the company embark on the Dragon Bay Regatta, racing in aid of the charity.

We look forward to seeing what challenges 2020 brings to Team Cranstons!
